For the last week (more like two), things between Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Isray and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning have been awkward.
Thankfully, we thought things would finally calm down after the two teams met on Sunday Night Football which ended with the Colts giving the Broncos their first loss of the season. But I guess we were simply being naive as it appears Isray has taken another subtle shot as his former franchise quarterback.
Speaking to the team after their victory, Isray said the following:
“That other guy next door (Peyton Manning), is one of the greats and I have nothing but gratitude towards what he’s done for this team,” Irsay said, via Eye on Football. “But today is today. And we all know that we want to go and get this (Irsay holds up his right hand with the Super Bowl ring on it). Anyone who doesn’t want more than one of these shouldn’t wear a horseshoe because that’s what it’s about.”
On the surface it doesn’t sound that bad, but read it again.
What’s this all about?
Anyone who doesn’t want more than one of these shouldn’t wear a horseshoe because that’s what it’s about.
Considering the Colts won their last NFL Championship in 2006, most on the roster doesn’t even have a Super Bowl ring as they’re still in the process of securing their first. But I think we do know somebody who did leave after getting one who no longer wears a horseshoe.
